summer freckles

summer breeze and warm winds, sunkissed cheeks and sunkissed locks. hot pink lips and romance. frappes and picnic rugs. nailpolish and marshmallows. big love. sweet and endearing. freckles...

favourite pastime crush

all this talk of beige being the wardrobe staple this summer has sent colossal waves of desire my way to embrace my rebellious side with some serious colour. and the only man i can lean on to deliver rapture is Mr Dries Van Noten. Only he can tickle my senses and conjure satisfaction providing me momentary blindness with his clever use of contrast and unique solid blocking. he liberates all simple sophistication to sartorial, ingenious and comes complete with artistic symphony. Rumour has it the new AW 10 is arriving at work this week... and i celebrate by referencing my all time favourite collection, ever, AW 09. no one can compare. DVN.

i need a pair of these leather babies now..

my blossoming relationship with leather has heightened some more. i am not coping at all knowing that there are such amazing leather shorts out there right now and i do not have a pair to call my very own. they must be high waisted...  and slouchy .. and ... ideally in a caper, rust, tan or black colour. not to be fussy or anything. perfect with a basic T or some simple shirting. underdone. but with killer wedged heals, ann demeulemeester or opening ceremony. momentary heart failure. can we cope? no. not. at. all.

cycling crush

the first clear blue sky in days today has set off my craving to cycle asap. i am dreaming of plentiful sun kisses on my skin and a saturday morning breezy excursion to the farmers markets picking up some fresh flowers and vegetables, frappes and sourdough bread. and i want to look this good doing it!

girl crush

there is always something about a wide tooth gap smile .. but my so very favourite crush on the gap at the moment is miss georgia may jagger. rock royalty and in-demand. with so many campaigns already under her belt this gal is my pick to become the most influential this year, next and the one after that too. 

the perfect lovers

the. hottest. couple. ever. an old french glamour shoot inspired by johnny depp and vanessa paradis makes my heart flutter at the copious beauty between these two genetically blessed beings. romantic. raw. unfazed. sex. appeal. plus. LOVE.

cover crush

essence of right now, a hit of inspiration, of fantasy, of seduction. something magical and raw. captured in one single shot. it feeds my craving and keeps me satisfied until the next one. i can stare at them all day long. they are just so damn beautiful. here are some of my all time favourites covers from my all time favourite publications, russh, numero, oyster and I-D. one big crush. 

miss kate moss for isabel marant

the woman every girl would love to be. understated sex symbol. complicated. endearing. confident. magnetic. perfectly undone. could there have been a more natural symphony? i dont think so. not in my wildest dreams.
